Megan E. Collins, M.D., is an assistant professor of ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute. She specializes in pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus, including amblyopia (lazy eye), congenital cataracts, retinopathy of prematurity, vascular anomalies and craniofacial malformations. Dr. Collins received her medical degree from the University of Chicago, where she also completed a fellowship in clinical medical ethics. After an internship in internal medicine at the University of Maryland, she returned to the University of Chicago for her residency in ophthalmology, followed by a fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus at the University of Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children.  ​Since becoming a faculty member at Wilmer she has focused on researching the doctor-patient relationship, barriers in access to eye care, epidemiology of pediatric eye disease, and the impact of refractive error on academic performance. As part of all of these research areas she currently leads Hopkins’ activities for Vision for Baltimore (V4B), a collaborative school-based vision program providing vision screening, eye exams, and eyeglasses to every child preK-8th grade in Baltimore City Public Schools.
